Governor Gavin Newsom just keeps delivering one humorous hit after another due to sheer arrogance and incompetency.
Just consider his self-aggrandizing announcement, per the “Office of Governor Gavin Newsom,” titled “California Enacts World-Leading Plan to Achieve 100 Percent Zero-Emission Vehicles by 2035, Cut Pollution.”
That announcement was little more than a boast about likely impossible objectives, as evidenced by the arrogance displayed by Newsom.
“We can solve this climate crisis if we focus on the big, bold steps necessary to cut pollution. California now has a groundbreaking, world-leading plan to achieve 100 percent zero-emission vehicle sales by 2035,” Newsom boomed.
“World leading,” huh? China would like a word, given that it’s clearly blown California out of the water with EV sales.
Then again, the goofy governor may well be a Chinese lackey like too many other career politicians.
“This plan’s yearly targets – 35 percent ZEV sales by 2026, 68 percent by 2030, and 100 percent by 2035 – provide our roadmap to reducing dangerous carbon emissions and moving away from fossil fuels. That’s 915 million oil barrels’ worth of emissions that won’t pollute our communities,” Newsom boomed.
Newsom didn’t bother to indicate how many other “emissions” will emerge from millions of people charging extremely expensive cars.
Moreover, as charging a car is not exactly as fast as filling a tank of gas, one does wonder about the practicalities of forcing all individuals to go to electric vehicles all at once.
“With the historic $10 billion we’re investing to accelerate the transition to ZEVs, we’re making it easier and cheaper for all Californians to purchase electric cars. California will continue to lead the revolution towards our zero-emission transportation future,” Newsom boomed.
Zero emission future? Good luck with that …
Of course, even more humor was in store in the future, as in the next day after California’s impractical announcement.
For instance, a humorous Newsweek headline indicated “Californians Told Not to Charge Electric Cars Days After Gas Car Sales Ban.”
This headline was supported by remarks from the California Independent System Operator (ISO) itself.
“California and the West are expecting extreme heat that is likely to strain the grid with increased energy demands, especially over the holiday weekend,” the ISO tweeted.
“Increased energy demands” yet Newsom is going to achieve zero emissions. Sure.
“Remember to defer using major appliances such as the stove, oven, dishwasher and washer and dryer from 4 to 9 p.m. today to conserve energy and alleviate stress on the power grid during today’s #FlexAlert,” the ISO trilled.
Perhaps what the Democrats really mean by a “green” future is that no one (aside from elites) will have the “right” to transportation, especially if the state blocks individuals from charging EVs that were mandated in the first place.
Governor Newsom is also intent on defeating DeSantis, who is a vastly more competent governor, as evidenced by his expenditures of up to $105,000 on Fox News ads.
“Freedom is under attack in your state. I urge all of you to join the fight, or join us in California, where we still believe in freedom. Don’t let them take your freedom,” Newsom boomed.
Seems like Newsom’s in-laws, however, disagree, given an extremely hilarious, and totally ironic, report from Fox News.
Journalist Joseph A. Wulfsohn wryly notes, “Democratic California Gov. Gavin Newsom has been a vocal critic of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, in recent weeks, but Newsom’s in-laws seem to approve of the popular Republican.”
Specifically, the California Governor’s in-laws made a $5,000 contribution on April 6, 2022 from the Siebel Family Revocable Trust.
The trust is run by Kenneth F. Siebel Jr. and Judith A. Siebel, the parents of Newsom’s wife, Jennifer Siebel.
Needless to say, a politician’s in-laws spending money on promoting DeSantis while the same politician tries to defeat DeSantis is rather comical.
To be a fly on the wall in the Newsom household when that report broke …
